My first thought was that was intended to mean that PHP shares most of 
its shortcomings, little of its charm, and adds its own quirks to the mess.

However, another interpretation might be that PHP chooses an appropriate 
subset and adds good support for the COM model, producing a decent language.

I am guessing that you meant more along the first line,  but I am 
interested in your elaboration either way.
